Rolling Stones announce 2019 U.S. stadium tour

The Rolling Stones, who have toured every year since 2012 and whose principals are all in their 70s, have announced a North American tour for next year that launches April 20 in Florida and wrap in Chicago on June 21. The initial announcement includes 13 dates, however there are several days between each tour date so additional shows seem likely, even with the Stones’ average of 3-4 days between shows.

“It’s a thrill when we play stadiums in the States,” Mick Jagger said in a statement, “the energy is always amazing!”

Keith Richards added, “I’ve always loved playing the states. It’s a great crowd.”

The group has been teasing the announcement for several weeks, with banners featuring its iconic logo hanging at football stadiums and various other hints.

Rather than doing months-long campaigns as they did over the past few decades, the group’s strategy over the past five years has been to do a dozen-odd shows per continent every few months. The group’s most recent tour, a European jaunt called “No Filter,” had a first leg spanning September and October of 2017 and concluded with a second run spanning May to July of this year. The Stones toured Latin America in 2016; they last toured North America in 2015.

While the group continues work on a new studio album, Abkco, which curates the group’s early catalog, is celebrating the 1968 Stones with three special releases emanating from that year: a remastered and repackaged “Beggars Banquet” vinyl reissue; a restored version of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Sympathy for the Devil” film (which documents the Stones recording the titular song); and, early next year, an expanded reissue of the legendary “Rock and Roll Circus” video and album.

The Rolling Stones and Universal Music Group in July announced an expansive worldwide agreement covering the band’s recorded-music and audio-visual catalogs, archival support, global merchandising and brand management.
